Lettered, lower center: "LOCAL MUSEUMS are treasure houses where unlikely objects - curious, ingenious, comic, | even beautiful - lie stranded for our gaze. They indicate local pride and sense of identity. | More vividly evocative of the everyday past than are grander institutions, they deserve | and reward our notice. | A new London Transport free leaflet lists a selection with a brief indication of what each museum | contains, times of opening and how to get there. It also identifies many of the oddities you see above. | The Museums and Art Galleries booklet (also free) deals with the major collections. Ask at any | London Transport Enquiry Office or write to the Public Relations Officer, 55 Broadway S.W.I."
